Boston Ballet’s Human Sculpture
October 13, 2015

Last Wednesday, Boston Ballet took part in a special event at the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway Conservancy. Twelve male company dancers re-created a moving human sculpture from the first movement of Third Symphony of Gustav Mahler: A Ballet by John Neumeier, which they will perform October 22November 1.

The event was a collaboration with artist Janet Echelman, whose aerial sculpture As If It Were Already Here has been on display in the park since May 2015. The juxtaposition of dance and sculpture was designed to expose the Boston public to the beauty of the two artforms.

Check out these stunning photos from the event:
